Four seats on the nine-member school board of the Austin Independent School District are up for election in November. 

The school board is a group of volunteers who oversee policies and finances in the district. They approve the yearly budget, hire and fire the superintendent, and approve various policies throughout the district. In 2019, the school board approved new sex education standards and voted to close four district schools.
